Researchers have discovered a new mechanism which helps to control brain development
Neuroscientists have known that stimuli–sensory experiences such as touch or sound, metabolic changes, injury and other environmental experiences–can trigger the activation of genetic programs within the brain.
Snapshots of Life: The Birth of New Neurons Posted on January 25, 2018 by Dr. Francis Collins After a challenging day at work or school, sometimes it may seem like you are down to your last brain cell. But have no fear—in actuality, the brains of humans and other mammals have the potential to produce new neurons throughout life.Continue reading “Snapshots of Life: The Birth of New Neurons”
During the foetal stage, millions of neurons are born in the walls of the ventricles of the brain before migrating to their final location in the cerebral cortex. If this migration is disrupted, the new-born baby may suffer serious consequences, including intellectual impairment.
Summary: Researchers find changes in masticatory stimuli can modulate neurogenesis and hippocampal function. Published in the Journal of Dental Research, findings reveal reduced mastication impaired learning and memory function in mice. Source: Tokyo Medical and Dental University According to researchers, the frequency of mastication has dramatically decreased along with changes in dietary habits. Masticatory stimulationContinue reading “Chewing and brain growth: Reduced Mastication Impairs Memory and Learning Function”
By Jonathan WebbScience reporter, BBC News, Bradford As they prepare a major study to test the idea, UK scientists have said that starting school at 10:00 could have huge benefits for teenagers. Research suggests that society pays too little attention to our “body clock” – and adolescents in particular have a late-running biological rhythm. ThisContinue reading “Sleep scientists’ wake-up call for later school starts”
How Gentrification Accelerated The initial seeds of gentrification date back several decades in some communities. In fact, a British sociologist first coined the term “gentrification” in 1963. Gentrification particularly accelerated, though, in recent years as growing numbers of Americans opted to pursue urban lifestyles. The gentrification rate, or share of eligible lower-income tracts experiencing gentrification,Continue reading “Gentrified San Jose and SF , California”
Since President Barack Obama first took office: The economy has added more than 10 million jobs, and job openings are at a 15-year high. The unemployment rate has dropped well below the historical norm, but long-term unemployment remains higher than at the start of the Great Recession. The buying power of the average worker’s weekly paycheck isContinue reading “President Barack Obama key results”
In a study about human memory, brain growth and learning, the first 12 yrs of human growth and learning is very critical to the future brain health. In contrast, the rats exposed to the shock compartment at 24 days of life learned and retained the memory for a long time and avoided this place—revealing aContinue reading “Early first 12 years of brain growth via learning”
Taking care of my senior clients in the bay area have taught me a lot of lessons. One client of mine had been giving her 90 yr old husband suffering from gout with a combo of Angelica (dried), Astralagus (dried) and Alove vera (fresh added in drinks). After many months, her hubby is now growingContinue reading “Hair growth in 90 yr old taking Angelica, astralagus and aloe vera”
Doctors often prescribe SSRIs to help put the brakes on the brain for those who are overly amped up. Essentially, serotonin and GABA are the brakes and Acetylcholine and Dopamine are the gas. When it comes to anxiety issues, SSRIs are analogous to using the emergency brake on your car to slow down the vehicleContinue reading “Brain food , sources of GABA and for brain cell growth”

Often, individuals employed by large corporations have the option to invest some of their qualified retirement plan contributions (e.g., 401(k) contributions), as well as employer contributions, into their employer’s stock. If you believe in the long term prospects of the company, that may make sense as part of your asset allocation strategy. But what happensContinue reading “Net Unrealized Appreciation and Qualified Retirement Plan Distributions”
